TUESDAY, JANUARY 15: On Monday the Minister of Public Safety, the Hon. Michael Dunkley, JP, MP, and Junior Minister Sen. Jeffrey Baron, JP, attended Warwick Camp to visit this year’s new recruits.

As the public is aware, the Bermuda Regiment is conducting its annual Recruit Camp and this year some 114 individuals are participating in the two week training exercise.

Minister Dunkley and Sen. Baron had a firsthand opportunity to meet with the recruits and were provided an update from Bermuda Regiment Commanding Officer, Lt. Col. Brian Gonsalves, Company Commander Capt. Duncan Simons and Second-in-Command Lt. Shea Smith on how this year’s camp was progressing.

The day’s activities also included Minister Dunkley and Sen. Baron enjoying a reception hosted by the Regimental Sergeant Major W01 Gavin Rayner followed by lunch in the Officers Mess with the Commanding Officer and his senior officers.

Minister Dunkley said, “The annual Camp is off to a good start. The Recruits have positive attitudes and the training staff is already hard at work developing the necessary skills.

“It was a pleasure to meet some of the young men and women who have just started their military training and I am looking forward to seeing the results of these intensive two weeks at the passing out parade.”
